A highly successful Rotary Foundation Global Grant project involving the clubs of Wolverhampton and Bangalore Peenya, India, in District 3190 is nearing completion.

The project, called ‘Happy Schools,’ and valued at $40000, is for the provision of clean water and sanitation in village schools in the state of Karnataka, southern India.

The project has proceeded extremely smoothly and the bonds between the two clubs have become so strong that a sister club agreement has been entered into.

One of Rotary’s key aims is to exchange and foster international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world of fellowship united in the ideal of service, and the agreement will pursue these plans by exploring further joint humanitarian projects, exchange visits and encouraging communication between the members of the two clubs.

We look forward to an ever growing friendship between our two clubs and our families, with a strengthening bond of Rotary service.
